said the way that we get a voting platform that would transform america is for latinos and blacks and poor white people to get together. i would add women to that. we have a number of women this year that hopefully they will be voting for what they want. we cannot get all of what we want unless we help someone else get what they want, and that leads to our working together, starting to strategize for 2016, when we made want somebody else to be president forced to change those people in the senate. usually, we'd wait until the last minute then come together. we need to get away from that. the dream that act does not hurt me. i want my brothers and sisters to have the dream act, but also to understand, i want as a woman, as an african-american. i want an african-american woman on the supreme court. we will then get to where we want to go. >> you mentioned -- latin decisions and a poll that came up with, which showed that he knows our elderly -- overwhelmingly fund of the president and not fond of the other party. it is not that one party is so great over the other. it really is that

is not cool. >> let's talk about -- let's talk about appealing to latino voters. there's a new poll out today. back in 2008 mccain had 31% of latino vote. that was not as good as george w. bush in 2004 he had 44% of latino vote. romney need at least a quarter to a third of latino vote toeshs competitive in states like colorado where the debate is and that kind of thing. real quickly because i want to get to donna on this issue. what does he need to do to appeal to latino voters? >> i think latino voters need to know more about mitt romney. they know very little. precious little about him. the little they do know they don't like. he has begun to change his tone. ep needs to continue doing latino outreach and doing events, doing interviews, doing media, pouring money and resources into paid media and to outreach efforts. >> donna to that point, romney has actually moved closer to president obama on immigration issues just very recently saying he's not is going to rerocky the visas, deport young illegal immigrants under the new law here. does that present a problem to the president if he moves c

done more to rock the latino vote than anyone else in her generation. then we ran into one of the finest biographers and had to ask him about steve jobs. he died a year ago today, but his legacy lives on. find out why steve jobs still matters so much to apple, and what he's writing next. >>> what about coca-cola the company is partnering with one of the most successful inventors. an odd couple that might get things right and meet a different jeff gordon than the nascar champion that talks about winning outside the track. it's a story that you probably never heard before. but first rosario dawson. >> gavin: so what brought you to the cause of vote latino. >> 2003 marked a major turning point in the history latinos were the largest minority in the country. we had been hearing about the latin ways for a long time, and that was the real latin ways right here. not just in hollywood but all over in the country. now we have the census to back it up and have the numbers. it's an incredible opportunity to reach out to a demographic that is affected very negatively by the economy job

this election. guest: 26% of the state is latino. this voting block has been shown to hear a lot about the economy, a lot about education. immigration does not rank as the highest this year of interest to these voters. it is an underlying across the board thing. are you saying the right thing on these topics. it is 2/3 versus 1/3 that the voters are split on this. this is what candidates are fighting about. obama made a promise to address it in his first year in office and did not do that. he said he did not have time and did not have a cooperative congress. that has not stopped republicans who say, we can bring a comprehensive immigration reform, which is a term both parties defined differently. they are trying to make that a sales pitch. if you turn on spanish radio, you hear nonstop commercials from both sides. this is a swing state for the president and it is also a swing state for the senate and one of the congressional races on here as well. host: if we are talking with karoun demirjian from the washington son. you can call in on the republican line. we have a special line set up

is a mural i designed for the usc student center with input from the latino student body. this mural is the focal point of a long struggle for the students at usc, who have struggled to assert their presence both in numbers and in sensibilities. we will use these lines to take to the center of our figures. and he figured them in mathematically... i call myself a chicana, because being a chicana means that i understand that i am in a position of the resistance of assimilation, essentially saying we will maintain our sensibility, that we are border people, that we live in the space between both the united states and mexico, that we are of neither and of both, and that we are, particularly, a people who...have a political point of view. and this is essentially the bones of the work. this will be like the bones -- what will hold the whole piece together so that not any part of the image will fly to a place. not an arm, not a leg, not a form, not a mountain, not a rock, will be placed haphazardly. it will be placed with intention. it will be placed in a musical rhythm, one form to the oth

a look at another state, and that's nevada, obama is leading, is this the latino vote factor that we have heard so much about? >> the president's going to win latinos outside of florida by a pretty healthy margin, the question is by how much, the other question we're going to need to answer and we won't know until after election. is the president's supporters going to show up to vote? they could be boosting him in nevada, but the other thing going on in nevada on the ground, which is unlike all of the other battleground states is the democrats have managed to -- the romney campaign and the government of the i'm in -- make up for the state party's dysfunction. the democrat had no such problem. the obama campaign and the state party run by senate majority leader harry reid is humming on all cylinders, they're doing a great job. i still think the presidential race in nevada would be close. >> we know tomorrow foreign policy is supposed to be the focus of this debate. and president obama will probably do well with that, that is traditionally your president. but i'm wondering here, what can mi

the latino vote out there. i want to get your take on how well the republican party has done this time around. guest: i think they have done a lousy job. we have marco rubio out here. instead of taking him into the latino sections of las vegas, they take him out to green valley and anderson. we need to go to the latinos. we cannot sit back and expect them to come to us. the democrats have done a great job on this. they unions push their members who are predominantly hispanic to register and vote democrat. the republicans have not done that. host: is it too late at this point for republicans to get that vote? guest: i don't know if it is too late. we need to get latinos explaining to latinos why the republicans should be their choice. i start to see that. host: let go out to california on the independent line. caller: i think all american citizens should be protected. what happened in benghazi is our military was put on alert right away and our president made our military stand down and not protect american citizens because it is political. what is really going on? it is a new world order and

shifts but we are in the same boat now. final analysis, it doesn't matter we are black or white, latino, asian american or native american. it doesn't matter whether we are a democrat or republican. it doesn't matter whether we are straight or gay. it doesn't matter whether we are jewish or muslim or christians. we are one people, one family, one house. [applause] this book "across that bridge" in effect our struggle is not a struggle to redeem the soul of america. it's not a struggle that lasts one day, one week, one month or one lifetime. maybe you would take more than one lifetime to create a more perfect union, to create the beloved community. and you heard david tell you why did get a rest at few times, and young people, young children say how can you be in the congress if you got arrested?

as of late show a strong trend towards mitt romney. host: what do you think about immigrants and the latino community? caller: they have always had a higher percentage of latino voters were voting for republicans than the other states. that is attributed to the elected leaders reaching out to the voters. historically they have had over 40% voting. president bush had over 50%. governor bush would get even 60% of the latino voters. this is not a typical state in terms of latina support. host: this story, immigration reform, the mitt romney softening stance putting of hard-liners. mitt romney, having to walk a fine line between latino voters and keeping his conservative base happy when it comes to cases like immigration. host: he can work on a bipartisan immigration bill that satisfies the conservatives. as the chairman of the american conservative union, i have a lot of input on the issue. basically, look, border security and law and order are key. conservative folks do not like the idea of the legal status in this country. -- illegal status in this country. the devil is in the details, of co

the fastest growing demographic group in the country, the latino community. do you agree? >> here is what i love about that statement. first of all, i love the way you say latino community. yes, the republican party has a lot of work to do in terms of communicating and connecting with the hispanic community to suggest that we care, we get it and we have policies that are going to be advantageous for the hispanic community. on the other hand, do you notice the president didn't say i'm going to win because i've done anything for the hispanic community. instead, he said, i'm eve going to win because they suck. >> do you agree with that? >> no, no. >> our agreement ended right there. i don't know why the president thought he needed to say that off the records. it sounds exactly like what he's been saying all along and what we as democrats have been saying all along. that's that the president has a great record on issues that are important to all the minority communities. that is part of where he comes from, not all of where he comes from, but that is part of his experience as a person. and the

is that good for president obama? given the president's support among african-americans, latinos and other voters, governor romney needs to keep the president to 37%, no more than 38% of the white vote. if the president's cracking 47% of the white vote, that's a formula for an obama victory. and where are the key big battleground states? there are several in the midwest. ohio, iowa, wisconsin. look at the race in the midwest. obama, 52%, romney, 43%. the president is winning that part of the country. out west in denver, colorado, nevada, among the battlegrounds out here in the west. ten-point lead in the west for the president. 54% to 44%. the white vote and if you look regionally, there are things that give the president's team some optimism. >> if you're the romney campaign looking at these new poll numbers, what should give the romney folks some optimism? >> reporter: one of the reasons we are back in a closer race, a statistical dead heat nationally f you go state by state, it's a little different, this number, governor romney has improved his standing among independents. he leads by e
